Okay…. Big Exhale…
We just heard back from Gavin’s immunologist at Akron Children’s Hospital. She called us back personally because, well, that’s what she does. She said that it’s perfectly acceptable that Gavin’s sick. It’s most likely the virus that’s going around right now.
We also learned that his antibody levels have been doing better since his IVIG dosage increase, so he should be fine. We have to be careful and keep him home but his donated immune system should be able to fight this off.
We have to continue his rescue inhaler and call her in the morning or on Friday is anything changes. She also called in a script for benadryl to help dry him out.
He needs to rest and give his body a chance fight this off.
I think I overreacted just a little bit. In all fairness though, in this situation, I think it’s better to overreact than underreact. We’ve never had him sick since we found out about his Immunodeficiency. I totally panicked and I’m okay admitting that.
It looks like it’s going to be just fine. ….and now we know. 🙂
